In 1968-1980 some 250,000 Jews left the USSR, 160,000 of them arriving in Israel. The peak years of the emigration to Israel were 1971-74, during which 80,000 Soviet Jews arrived in that country. Four principal factors have. been put forward to account for the fluctuations of the Soviet emigration. These are: the ups and downs of Soviet-US relations; developments in the Arab-Israeli conflict; the demographic character of the Jewish population in the USSR; the degree of success of the absorption process of the Soviet immigrants in Israel.
